Cosalt UK donates decommissioned firefighting kits to fire brigades around the world
Published on 20 June 2011
Cosalt Workwear has collected over £100k of decommissioned firefighting kit so that it can be donated to charity.
Cosalt is one of the UK's leading providers of protective clothing and equipment to the emergency services, military, transport and construction industries.
Hundreds of protective fire suits, helmets, gloves and boots that are no longer of use to the UK fire and rescue services have now been sent to less well off countries in Eastern Europe, the Middle East and South America via Operation Florian, a UK Fire Service Humanitarian Charity.
For many years, Cosalt has been one of the main suppliers of structural fire fighting and rescue kit to the majority of UK fire brigades. "Given our long-standing relationships with the fire and rescue services, we are in the best position to collect unwanted items and liaise directly with the charities concerned to pass on the donation," added Pete.
